Disgusting kitchen! I really liked the pizza the first few times we ate there. The last time my family ate there will be the last and here's why.... We went in and got a table for six of us in the small dining area so it's hard to miss us. We ordered pizza and got our drinks and then we waited, and waited and waited. 45 minutes later after 8-10 customers had come in and got their take out orders we went to the counter and asked what was taking so long to find out they had lost our order even though we were the only customers sitting in the dining area. They re-did our order and promised to give us free dessert to make up for it. In the meantime my Granddaughter had to use the bathroom so they let my wife escort her through the kitchen. The kitchen was filthy and the back door was open letting in a lot of flies. The flies were everywhere. When she came back from the bathroom our pizza was there and we were already eating over an hour after we ordered or I would have left and demanded our money back after hearing about the kitchen filth. We never got our free dessert though we wouldn't have eaten it. No apology from management; they blamed everything on having been busy earlier and having several new employees.
Very BAD service. Pre paid for the food deal (one slice,knots and drink). Waited about 30 minutes, then checked up with what was taking so long and they said just a few more minutes. 20 minutes later they said my order didn't exist. Asked for refund and they gave me a hard time. I left and counted my change the lady short changed me, so I went back in and she said that I had to pay for the drink cup! I asked to speak with the manager and he was very rude yelling at me in front of the customers! NEVER coming here again.
Side Note: Other people orders were also "Non existent". Very Disappointing.
Been here once before and had luke warm re heated pizza, not good.
Fresh, clean, efficient, and cheerful. Reasonably cold beer, healthy salads, and pizzas that deliver taste by delicacy rather than heaps of stuff that will give you a stomach attack.
The pizza is cold. Sits out for hours,the salad bar is not kept cold enough BEWARE the pasta salad and potato salad is used over and over,the place is dirty!!!
Went to the location in University Village. Very good lasagna, however the wood oven pizza was only average, as the toppings just did not have enough flavor and the crust wasn't quite right. $28 for a two person lunch is also on the high side.
I just moved here from the Midwest and I have to say maybe it does not rate with the high end pizza places like Giordanos or Lou Malnatis but for the value, the stuffed pizza is very, very good. I could not stop eating this so I ate even when I was full! Another sign of this pizza being excellent? when I had it for leftovers the next few days and warmed in my oven (do not use microwave!!) it even tasted better! I am so glad I found this place! Now I need to test the Roast beefs (i love the hot giardenaires they offer).
Art the pizza snob from Chgoland.
Never will go back to Bambinos since the owners did not renew the lease on La Creperie, one of downtowns oldest remaining quality eateries. Will not patronize their hamburger joint effort, The Skirted Hiefer. Nothing like adding one more burger joint to an already saturated burger market in this town, but hey, good luck on your half thought out business plan. The pizzas and "Italian" food at Bambinos were always mediocre at best, much, much better choices in the town. Arrivederci!
This place is unclean, the food undercooked, the preparation uneven (meaning the ingredients are not appropriately spread around the crust...the sauce is simply ketchup from a squirt bottle, and the help has never held a job before and will probably turn over before the week is out.
The cheese on this pizza tastes like plastic. Also, this restaurant (at any of their locations) has some of the worst customer service I've ever seen. They act like they are doing you a favor to condescend to take your order.
My husband used to live on the east coast, this was the closest to NY pizza that he's seen in Colorado. The staff was great, pizza hot and tasty and the cannolis (especially the chocolate ones) are to die for!!!
awful pizza, awful people...deserves to go under
It's an insult to refer the pizza to NY style? You have a blend of the lowest quality GMO cheese, our pizza pie cheese didn't even melt. Never again..
I just read the review about it taking 25 mins for a calzone. Wow, I would have been overjoyed if it only took 25 mins. More like an hour!! Pizza was so so. Service was horrible and the place was a mess. $36 for crappy food. Do yourself a favor and don't go.
Relax...it is not meant to a five star eatery...it is a bring your own beer pizza place, with the best pizza in El Paso County.
I think it is fun and funky...but if you drop the attitude, so do the people there, who I have always found friendly, talkative, and helpful.
I must say it was quite unfriendly, over price, and tiny salads. I ordered 2 slices of cheese pizza and 2 house salads(the size of a big mac box) with very little on it... for 20 bucks! Need I say more.
Praise the Lord, and pass the pepto
good pizza and i love the $11 18" special
vikisgarden5 - you could pick up the phone and call them. Just saying...
Try after 5 pm.
I just want to know what their hours are so I can go??
